Buck is living a happy life in California until he is sold to pay a gambling debt. Taken to the Klondike to become a sled dog, Buck must toughen up and learn the harsher rules of survival in the North. One of the first of these is how to deal with being harnessed in the same team as a dog that wants to kill him.Large, strong and smart, Buck toughens to his new life. But even the toughest dog can be worn down by constant work, and after 3,000 miles of pulling sleds, Buck nears the end of his rope.Cast away as no longer useful, Buck is acquired by greenhorns whose inexperience nearly kills him, but after being saved by John Thornton, he at last finds a man he can love.Then on a remote gold-hunting expedition, Buck hears a call emanating from the woods and speaking to the wild heart of his distant ancestors. The lure of it almost balances the great love he bears for Thornton, but events take him away from his old life... and into legend.
the narration is weak
My all time favorite book. Loved Buck and his story. What an amazing dog. I first read this book as a kid close to 50 years ago. Loved having it read to me again.
What a exciting story. I loved Buck and his story. I first read this book 45 years ago. Thrilled to have had it read to me.
Good book but bad narrator:(:(:(:(:(
I absolutely love this book, but could not bear the narration.
The only thing wrong with this audio book is the narrator. His voice is monotone and so boring. It made a great story so hard to get through.
Hey mom, I found drunk Uncle Hershel! Jk, but seriously, great book, terrible narrator. Get it together, Hershel!
boring book one of the worst book's i ever read
The narrator has a horrible voice which makes the whole process very boring though the book might be interesting.
I love this book, but the narrator is awful!! DISTRACTINGLY BAD. He reads like he's sustained a head injury, and his mouth is apparently dripping with saliva and lots of lip smacking. He reads in a total monotone, no inflection. I'm so disappointed, because I really love this story, but the reading is so crappy I had to turn it off.
